About Claire Gray
I have been working in the mental health field since 2011 when I started my career at a residential treatment center for adolescent girls and their families. At this center, I worked with various mental health issues, including substance use, eating disorders, attachment issues, and anxiety and depression. I was able to witness the resiliency of families affected by trauma as they created new patterns of relating to each other and to the world around them. Through these experiences, I learned how to foster change within family systems and empower individuals to live by their personal values.
My style of therapy focuses on assessing the unwritten rules of a system and encouraging second order change–change not just in behaviors but in underlying beliefs. I work to create a safe space by building the therapeutic alliance between client and therapist, and believe that relationships have substantial power to effect lasting change.
I graduated in 2015 with my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, and in 2018 with my Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy. When I’m not at work, I enjoy creating artwork with my friends, listening to horror fiction podcasts, and traveling the world with my pilot boyfriend.
